French forward Antoine Griezmann has reaffirmed his desire to finish his European career with Atletico Madrid, the club he considers his home.
In an interview with Spanish newspaper AS, Griezmann was asked about his future plans. He responded by saying that he wants to stay with Atletico until he retires from European football.
“I know the club is open to me making an effort (financially), and we will talk about it,” Griezmann said. “Beyond Europe, what I would like to do later is the MLS, I have always said that.
“But Atletico will almost 100% be my last club in Europe. At least, that’s where I want to be, that’s where I’m happiest. Here, I’m at home.”
Griezmann has been in excellent form for Atletico this season. He has scored 16 goals and provided two assists in all competitions, and he is now the club’s joint-top scorer of all time with 173 goals.
Griezmann’s comments are a boost for Atletico, who are looking to build on their success this season. The team won the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Super Cup in 2023, and they are currently third in La Liga.
Griezmann’s contract with Atletico runs until June 2026, but the club may be willing to extend it if he continues to perform at a high level.
